Golf in its purest form awaits you at Berkeley Hall Club, the lowest density private club in the Southeast with only 5.3 home sites per hole. With two (2) Tom Fazio “Core Golf” courses patterned after the classic designs of the 1920s; Rivera, Winged Foot, Seminole, the “core routing” is uninterrupted by any interior homes or roads. Home sites have been positioned on the perimeters, with generous setbacks so that each layout meanders through an open coastal landscape framed by seaside grasses. Dramatic elevation changes, beautiful water features, and bold strategic bunkering showcase the designer’s artistry. You’ll find each course superbly routed with a seamless blend of balance, variety and flow, regarded as two of the most meticulously maintained golf courses in the Southeast.
The North Course is a scenic marvel with tranquil lakes, rolling fairways and bunkers that strategically frame heavily contoured greens. Its elevation changes, open vistas and liberal use of native grasses give the North Course a unique beauty unrivaled by any course in the Lowcountry.
The South Course offers a classic parkland golf experience, featuring majestic live oaks, loblolly pines, azaleas, and crepe myrtles, which accentuate the course routings against a backdrop of golden marshes along the pristine Okatie River. Tree-lined fairways, glistening lakes and bold contoured green complexes create a dramatic and challenging Lowcountry gem.
Surrounded with the splendors of natural beauty, world-class golf and golden marshes, you’ll find our casually upscale lifestyle sets the easy tempo of a life well-lived.

It’s easy to think here, as sunlight glimmers through the trees, and the River Park winds along the banks of the river. Surrounded by 10 miles of nature trails, our Berkeley Hall Greenway travels to it, over rustic bridges and below moss-draped live oaks.
Leading toward the River Park’s Community Dock, our special open space connects multi-use pathways, gardens, and trails. Jogging, leisurely strolling or cycling, it’s one of the most beautiful places you’ll find.
